Ferrari unleash it’s horse (14:00)
Silverstone: The real sound of 2014
Yesterday, while McLaren and Lotus showed the world what their 2014 chargers look like Mercedes (Nico Rosberg), Force India (Nico Hulkenberg) and Torro Rosso (Dani Kvyat and Jean-Éric Vergne) took to the track at Silverstone.
There has been a lot of debate re the sound of the cars but what is the verdict of the jury for the actual live running car?
AMuS reports that a slight dispute is in the making between the three V6 makers Mercedes, Renault and Ferrari. The dispute is over whether a protective cover for the turbocharger, weighing between 3 and 4 kilograms, is necessary.
Mercedes and Renault argue that the cover is needed for safety reasons in the event of a turbo failure, but Ferrari wants to leave the cover off. According to AMuS correspondent Tobias Gruner the manufacturers have asked for clarification on the matter.
Sources close to TJ13 has indicated Mercedes was having problems with their turbo charging unit brought on by the resonance in vibrations in the new V6 powertrains. Renault appears to have captured the aftermath of when their turbo unit disintegrated and will shot this as evidence.
